Brecon’s St John Ward Councillor, Matthew Dorrance, has called on Cllr Edwin Roderick to apologise for remarks he made at Brecon Beacons National Park Authority’s Planning Committee where he referred to part of St John Ward as ‘dodge city’ and likened homes in the ward as ‘converted lean-to’s.’
Cllr Matthew Dorrance said:
“Edwin Roderick’s comments show just how out of touch he is. He should apologise immediately, unreservedly and publically for his deeply offensive and distressing comments which are unacceptable from someone holding elected public office.
“I am proud to represent the community where I was born and brought up. I know this community and I know it’s full to the brim of decent people with better manners than Cllr Roderick.”
